NeveHarms For the past twenty-five years, Ed Dwyer has been engaged in fund raising and coordinating activities to provide ways for youths of the Peoria area to enjoy sports.
His leadership role in the Independent Sports Club as a director and as president was pointed toward the betterment of youths in sports. This objective also spurred his interest in being a leading salesman of fund raising tickets for the Old Timers Baseball Association, and the Spalding and Bergan Booster Clubs because the ultimate goal was to help the youth.
Ed is involved in the "Friends of Fatherless Boys and Girls Club" because it offers a chance to help those in need. And his position of being one of the Founding Fathers of the St. Patrick Society heightens his interest due to the fact that this organization also is dedicated to doing charitable work for youths.
On many occasions, Dwyer has coordinated tickets between Bradley University and Youth Farm so youngsters could enjoy the many sporting events at the University.
Ed and his wife Mary Ann have three children and three grandchildren.
